World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War - Max Brooks Though zombie books aren't usually my 'thing', a friend of mine insisted I would enjoy this book. She was right. I did enjoy this story. Rather than focusing on zombies themselves, the book presents an international analysis (told through many individual stories) of a greatly-decimated world ten years after the end of humanity's world war against zombies. I especially enjoyed the author's conjectures on how various countries/cultures would respond to such a huge threat & the suppositions of how countries & populations fared, which economies came out strongly after the war, etc.... If you enjoy geo-political musings (in a rather non-traditional frame of zombies), you may enjoy this book.
